My husband and I rented a 45 ft houseboat to see if it was something we might like to do with the kids and grand kids-and got upgraded to a 65 ft boat because of mechanical problems with the smaller one-and LOVED it. Just the two of us for 5 days on the lake with food, fishing,movies,and adult beverages. Heaven.

I was on a short summer-camp. One day we got sent off on a long walk in the woods because we ate chocolate chip cookies, which was compeletely forbidden! It was supposed to be a metaphor for the temptation in the Bible, and on our walk there was a quiz! I had so much fun!

I was on a summer camp! One day we got sent off on a long walk in the woods because we ate chocolate chip cookies that the leaders had put out, and that was completly forbidden, haha! It was supposed to be a metaphor for the temptation in the bible, which we failed miserably, and on our walk there was a quiz. It was so much fun!

This summer my husband and I took our first ferry ride from Port Angeles, WA, to Victoria, B.C. The ride was wonderful sitting outside in the sun and a nice breeze blowing on our faces. The only thing that would have made it even better is eating a bowl of fresh Ice Cream while riding : )

I hope you’re having a wonderful summer also.
